"Your mother and father are running away,"said a voice piercing the warm air.I froze and turned toward home.To a Hutterite, nothing is more shamefulthan that word, running away, Weglaufen..." In 1969, Ann-Marie's parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony inCanada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the familywas thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of theirunique culture. The transition was overwhelming.Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritagein order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinventherself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family toleave community life.Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrativeshines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath everyhuman exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance. "A superb memoir...?his has the makings of a prairie classic." -AWARD JURY, SASK BOOK AWARDS "Honest, strong, clear, direct, it opens the door on what has beenfor so many of us a completely closed world." -WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
